We continued our day with Marlene from Experience Provence in Roussillon. It’s listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France, and is located in a large ochre deposit. This palette of rich earthy colors make for gorgeous street and cliff scenes, which contrast the deep green pines and the blue skies.
My first sketch attempted to capture the view of the village rooflines. It was done quickly, omitting most of the details.
Another view of the landscape includes Mt. Ventoux, over 40 miles away. You can get a little idea of the rich ochre earth between the deep green pines.
I wasn’t about to leave without a souvenir of these wonderful earth colors, so I bought some pigments, and will play with them later!
